Bajaj Auto’s Turkey subsidiary has officially revealed the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 specs. As per these, the new Pulsar will be powered by the same 199.5 single cylinder liquid cooled DTSi engine with triple spark technology, which powers the NS200.
But instead of delivering 23.52 PS power at 9,500 rpm and 18.3 Nm torque at 8,000 rpm, it delivers 24.4 PS power at 9,500 rpm and 18.6 Nm torque at 8,000 rpm in the RS200. This means, the fully faired Pulsar variant is about 0.90 PS more powerful than NS200, and about 1 PS less powerful than Duke 200 and RC 200.
Bajaj Pulsar RS200 specs also reveal weight and dimensions. Kerb weight of the new Pulsar will be at 151 kgs, which is 6 kgs more than the NS200. It will be 2060 mm long, 1160 mm tall, and 750 mm wide while ground clearance will be at 165 mm. This means, the RS200 is longer by 43 mm, shorter by 35 mm, and narrower by 54 mm as compared to NS200. Ground clearance too is reduced by 2 mm.
In spite of being heavier than NS200, added power and streamlined body helps the new Pulsar RS200 to achieve an even higher top speed as compared to NS200, which maxes out at 136 kmph. Bajaj also highlights that the new Pulsar will also be fuel efficient and easy on the environment with less CO2 emissions. Fuel tank size of RS200 is 12 litres, which is 2.3 litres less than NS200. Official mileage is not revealed.
Featuring twin projector headlamps with LED DRLs in the front, diamond shaped LED tail-lights, and a muscular fairing that gives the Pulsar 200 RS a very sporty look. Tyres and alloys will be of the same rating and size, as seen on Pulsar NS200 – which are 110/80/17 (front) and 130/70/17 (rear). Size of disc brakes too is also same – 280 mm front and 230 mm rear. ABS will be on offer. Speaking about ignition system, no official word is out.
